The Promise


We shall pass through a million phases
Some might be colorful, others may be blue
No matter how tough the times are
I promise, I'll be there for you

Everything now seems to be fine
The old comforts and we welcome the new
When new beginnings may not start right
I promise, I'll be there for you

A lot of things may be thrown at us
If situations get difficult to get through
My hand will remain entwined in yours
I promise, I'll be there for you

Some people may not trust you sometimes
When fingers are pointed and suspicions brew
I shall negate all of them in a blink
I promise, I'll be there for you

If you are broke and totally clueless
If a day comes where you have nothing to do
I shall give you all I have
I promise, I'll be there for you


When your mind is baffled with piercing questions
When you have no one to speak to
I shall help you break the shackles
I promise, I'll be there for you

If our kids do not listen to what you say
Failing to see your point of view
I'll stand there nodding to your every word
I promise, I'll be there for you

If we are neglected by our own family
To it, if you want to bid adieu
I shall pack our bags together
I promise, I'll be there for you

When we grow old, things shall be difficult
It shall be tough to dye your hair or chew
I shall help you get past all with a smile
I promise, I'll be there for you

When we are all wrinkled and almost blind
Of our life, we shall remain the two people crew
Till the day I shall be laid to rest
I promise, I'll be there for you

  7. Where are such men? I loved this verse most.
    If we are neglected by our own family
    To it, if you want to bid adieu
    I shall pack our bags together
    I promise, I'll be there for you
    Beautifully written that will warm the cockles of hearts of many women

    1. I wrote this from a woman's point of view. Mine.

      It works both ways I guess. Thank you!
